I posted this in a Etsy forum. Thank you everyone for all the support, and for those who don't believe I am old enough, I plan to prove you wrong.

When I first joined Etsy I had all intentions of putting my age in on my profile, but when I went into the chat rooms and everyone is talking about their kids, work, and husbands I felt like no one would take me seriously. I felt like I was an outcast and that everyone would not respect my work. I now know and I have relized that is does not matter how old I am, I know that I am talented and I love making jewelry. It does not matter what others think, weither it be my age or my about work.
I am 15 1/2 years old. I am a freshman in high school, I just got my learners permit, I am a cheerleader for my school, and my FAVORITE thing to do is make jewelry. I really is my passion. I put a lot of effort and time into each peice. I don't want anyone to think that my age has an effect on the craftsmanship of my jewelry.
I might be 15 but I am determind to make something of myself. While all of my friends are searching for summer jobs I am searching for craft festivals and trying to find new ways to better promote myself. I know I can succeed, but all I need now is for other to believe that I can do it!


  1. I think that is so great! The sooner you start, the better. You will no so much by the time you are my age, and I'm only 26. Good luck in all you do!

  2. I don't think that you should worry at all about your age, and I think your jewelery looks fabulous.Your passion comes through in your writing and I wish you much success. I made my first button ring when I was 5 and used string so I could wear it :)
